Wahlberg's Baby Joy Tempered By Sister Tragedy
BOOGIE NIGHTS star MARK WAHLBERG is mourning the death of his sister, on the same day he experienced the joy of becoming a father for the first time.
Wahlberg's sibling DEBORAH DONNELLY-WAHLBERG tragically died in hospital on 2 September (03), aged 43, after reportedly suffering a heart-attack whilst being supposedly treated for a suspected kidney stone in Boston, America - while across the country the actor celebrated the birth of his baby girl.
Long-term girlfriend RHEA DURHAM welcomed ELLA RAE WAHLBERG into the world at four o'clock in the morning at Los Angeles' CEDARS-SINAI MEDICAL CENTRE.
A friend of the actor says, "It was the best day of his life - and the worst. Every year on the kid's birthday, he'll be reminded of it.''10/09/2003 13:48
